Personnaly, I love this webcomic/manga ... however, there's been much uproar in the Korean community about this (which seriously, I don't know why they're all up in arms). I mean, all the countries receive a bashing, that's the object of it all.
its gives these idiots the impression that it is historically accurate
that in itself is offensive.
I simply dont like hetelia fangirls
they ruin everything
Hetalia is lovably ridiculous. If your sense of humor is compatible with it, it's really easy to get into. (As an American it's hilarious because I can't even argue with the stereotype of my country)
But seriously...I haven't met anyone so far that really takes the actual history in the show seriously, and pardon my language, but anyone who does is a dumbass. I'm convinced that any mention of an actual history is merely there so the viewer isn't completely lost about what they're looking at...and the extremist fangirls are the horrid ones usually. We can be level-headed, but THEY make us look bad.
Korea can never become an animated cartoon character. It is not reflected on comics either.
The author does not make a fool of Korea.
The author does not make a fool of World War II.
